There is pretty much nothing worse than a dead phone battery when you really need to be somewhere, or call someone, or check what your favourite celebs are up to on Twitter. Batteries seem to only die at the most inconvenient times but fear not, we’re here to help with tips on the best battery saving apps. With so many apps out there that claim to preserve battery life, we trawled the stores to find the best battery saving apps for iOS and Android.
Greenify for Android
Greenify is free, has a bunch of extra features, and does just what it claims: it reduces battery drain with no side effects. It works by identifying the apps that are chewing through your power and placing them in hibernation until you want to use them again. This has the added benefit of not slowing down your device with background activity. Bonus!
Users running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and up can also benefit from the “Aggressive Doze” and “Doze on the Go” features, which dial up your phone’s Doze Mode to save even more battery.
Get Greenify on the Google Play store.
Battery Doctor for iOS and Android
Battery Doctor is ranked among the top 10 apps in a bunch of countries for good reason. The user-friendly app shows you what functions are draining the most battery from your iOS device, gives you reliable readouts of how much juice you have left, and offers tips on how to prolong the battery life of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
You can quickly adjust settings from within the app to improve battery life and see the results in real time. The power saving profiles are another handy feature; you can schedule profiles to activate automatically to save power when you’re sleeping.
Battery Optimizer & Cleaner for Android
Software security powerhouse McAfee (an Intel Security company) released Battery Optimizer & Cleaner with a ton of features and they keep adding more as time goes on. This app does all the normal things like flagging battery hungry apps, removing temporary data from apps, and providing real-time battery updates. But it also does a few very clever things; the app can find and delete blurry photos or group similar photos so you can delete duplicates, monitor your mobile data usage, and the Quick Boost function is a one-touch tool to instantly improve performance. It makes a great all-in-one if you are looking for a battery saving app and cleanup tool.
Battery Optimizer & Cleaner is available on the Google Play store.
